Parents and Coaches, are you tired of being confused with the whole recruiting process and wondering how it all works? Take the power back into your own hands and learn how to support your student-athlete! The greatest gift that lacrosse brought to me in my own life was that it pushed me towards getting the best education that I possibly could through Princeton University. Now, I want to guide other young student-athletes in their efforts to put education first.
I am pleased to announce that I have partnered with some top educational leaders in the country and a educational technology company called AthletePrep to provide "LacrossePrep - Trevor Tierney Edition", an online platform and service that guides young lacrosse players (the system is customized for seventh through twelfth grade) through the college-search and college-preparation processes. Please note that this is not a recruitment tool, but an educational and developmental tool for athletes which includes the online services below. Please go to https://trevortierneyblog.com/lacrosseprep/ to see video demonstrations of all these components and to learn more.
1. PERSONALIZED GUIDANCE COUNSELING PLATFORM
Provides student-athletes with a tool that provides student athletes with a "Fit and Match" overview, showing how they match up for admissions at any school in the country, along with providing detailed financial and scholarship information for families. LacrossePrep utilizes an online tool developed by Don Betterton, who was the financial aid director at Princeton University for 30 years and a highly sought after guidance counselor. An estimated retail value of $499 (private guidance counselors get paid hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to provide the same type of research and information that this system is based upon).
2. STANDARDIZED TESTING TUTORIAL SERVICE
Prepares student athletes for standardized tests through an online tutorial service called EPrep. This system has been used by thousands of students throughout the country to improve their SSAT, PSAT or SAT and ACT scores (the system is customized based on your grade, from seventh through twelfth). This is an awesome way for young athletes to get access to a virtual tutor and practice taking their standardized tests, which is one of the most important aspects of getting into college. An estimated retail value of $399 (private tutors and courses charge thousands of dollars to provide this basic service).
3. ATHLETIC AND ACADEMIC RESUMÉ BUILDER
Allows student-athletes to keep all of their academic and athletic information organized in one place online. This platform allows them to create their own web page to share with friends, parents, high school coaches, and prospective college coaches. An estimated retail value of $99 (recruiting services charge hundreds of dollars per year for a similar service).
4. ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT VIDEO LIBRARY
Supports student-athletes to become more skilled at lacrosse through a series of athletic development videos by Trevor Tierney. These videos cover fundamentals, shooting, goalie, and stick stringing instruction and the library will continue to get larger each year. An estimated retail value of $99.
5. RECRUITING SUPPORT VIDEO LIBRARY
Student-athletes receive support on the recruiting process through a vast array of video clips by Trevor Tierney. These videos go through all the ins and outs of recruiting questions and walk athletes through the NCAA guidelines and schedules. An estimated retail value of $49.
6. LIVE WEBINARS WITH TREVOR TIERNEY
Get individual support from Trevor Tierney with a hour-long webinar each week. This weekly call is based on supporting the student-athletes and families through their questions and needs, going through the entire system and answering any personal questions that you have around the college search or recruiting processes. An estimated retail value of $100.
